Loop Collective presents Summer party @ The Vortex on Friday June 24th– double album launch: Splice & MA + Snack Family

Friday 24 June | 8.30pm | £8 | Book online Snack family: Andrew Plummer - vocals/ baritone guitar, James Allsopp - baritone sax, Tommy Greenhalgh - drums

MA Led by Redsnapper/Outhouse saxophonist, Tom Challenger, MA features fellow Loop collective collaborator, drummer Dave Smith, organist Ross Stanley as well as long term friend and collaborator Matt Calvert on electronics. Within a setting of dubby beats and drones, MA utilise deceptively simple themes as a launch pad for music that is hugely atmospheric but full of powerful improvisation and unexpected textures. Tonight MA will launch their CD 'The Last'.

Splice Splice's raison d'ĂȘtre is to mesh together influences of contemporary jazz, free improv, loud and soft noise, punk grit, ambient music, and more... with seamless blends or blunt juxtapositions. Featuring Alex Bonney on trumpet and electronics, Robin Fincker on tenor sax and clarinet, Dave Smith on drums, Pierre Alexandre Tremblay on bass guitar and electronics, Splice will launch their debut CD 'LAB'.

DJ set from Ross Mcdouall
